sebelius, the cabinet secretary of health and human services stood her ground. kathleen sebelius testified where chiros grilled about the promise -- where she was grilled about the promise president obama made americans who like their insurance can keep it. >> if you like your plan, keep your plan. >> he pressed kathleen sebelius to say whether the president's promise still listed on the white house website is still true or is it false? kathleen sebelius insisted the president's promise is true for those whose plans qualify. but he artfully dodged the point that 78 million that do not qualify under the obama care law will lose their insurance next year. the report contradicts the obama administration reassurances. that only a few face cancellation. constituents see this so their outrage is widespread. they perceive it as obama duplicity and welcome anyroomied. so on monday -- any remedy. so on monday two democrats introduced s1642, a bill that allows insurance plans offered to individuals to be sold in coming years. here is the description. we said and the president said that if people hav

warned them. >> he did say it. >> ok, fine. >> he said it in front of kathleen sebelius in a hearing. i believe it was in a hearing all for the public to see. >> he whispered it in her ear. >> it's out personal responsibility, to charles' point. and that means you get fired if you screw this up. we've wyeyet to see anybody los eir job, except the one chief officer at medicare and medicaid resigned, and won't say why he left. >> there's so many liberals in silicon valley, you would think they could ask adam to help them >> i'd be a lot more confident if they had. >> thank you. >> how many liberals are in silicon valley? the guy who runs twitter is probably liberal, as is zuckerberg who runs facebook feeds obama whenever he wants. but if ey need expert the left of silicon valley, was right there for them. look, you and your pal with thsame first name are revealing, you know, your bitter hatreds here. >> bitter. >> obviously -- >> wow. >> it's either racism, bitter hatred. you can't -- that's why we have these problems, by the way. because the president is beyond reproach. you can't ever c
what some saw as a less than ringing endorsement of kathleen sebelius, saying she isn't to blame because she's not an i.t. person. with us now, former white house deputy chief of staff to president george w. bush and fnc contributor karl rove, and columnist for "the daily beast" and fnc contributor kirsten powers. welcome to you both. kirsten, i'll start with you. do you think that the president's made enough of an apology at this point to express that he feels what people are going through and takes in some way responsibility for telling them they could keep their plans when we know the administration knew to some extent they wouldn't be able to? >> yeah, i mean, i think it is an apology. maybe people want a little more self-flagellation or something, but he definitely did apologize. it was a little too late, i would say, after they had, you know, come out day after day kind of acting annoyed a bit that people were complaining about this and a little put out. and then i think they realized that it was getting out of control and they were going to have to do something. so, the ne
that. >> you heard from kathleen sebelius this past week. what is your confidence level that healthcare.gov will be working after november 30? >> it will not be. the website in and of itself is a symptom of bigger problems. it kind of obscures these bigger problems. there is a lot of problems beyond that that even if they do get the website working, they will find out that they are not going to get the number of young people in they want. they will find people turned off from the promise that if you like it you can keep it, your health insurance or your doctor. they will see their premiums go up and all those things will be major problems for obama care. that was best reflected by the fact that this week, you have 16 democrats up for election and go down to the white house to complain but they did not get much sympathy from the white house because the white house is so sold on obama care being the answer to everything that they are not willing to admit there's anything wrong. you don't find very much admittance of something wrong and you only hear the president give a speech last week
coverage it is a lowball estimate. gerri: and so a big announcement from kathleen sebelius earlier today talking about adding mental-health. [laughter] so she says there should be parity between carriage of mental-health issues and physical ailments. if i break my arm on sixth avenue i will see a doctor who wwll fix ann it is over. therapy is once aeek over years. how do you me them the same? the cost is different. >>ou talk to all major new crosstree already know that obamacare is basic plan is much more important one dash expensive than people thought. they will continue to add benefits. if it ev gets off the ound. every american and once their own health plan. like kiwi be a society to pick and choose? why do we do one-size-fits-all? i do not the maternity care. [lghter] gerri: tell me something inteigent about the mental alth benefit i understand but psychiatrists do not work to work for this kind of money that medicare and medicaid serces do. >> that is between the metal kolff servicesith a lack of access. said it there are some elements like abetes better chronicler better similar
are admitting that healthcare.gov should be shut down until it's fixed and made that proposal to kathleen sebelius this week. >> you've indicated that delays health care for a lot of people. and i appreciate that, but if you want more time, why not just get it done right? >> and this week, 16 democratic senators met with the president at the white house to express their concerns about the health care glitches. 12 of those senators voted for the affordable care act in 2010 and face re-election next year. joining the panel this week, "wall street journal" columnist, dan lettinger. editorial board member joe rego and washington columnist kim straso. this is not a president who apologizes for much. recently, he just said we're going to grind it out. i think that's a direct quote. we're going to grind it out on obama care. why the switch on the apology? >> i think after what are he's been through with obama care the last two weeks and that meeting with the 15 senators, he had to stop the political bleeding on this problem. he had to do something. so he's apologized to the american people. prob
to be on this plan and put his epitire fan and kathleen sebelius and congress. they want out of obama care, while they insist i get it, they don't want to seem selfish and put themselves on it, but i found things to love about obama care after all. no kidding, you know what, i found out under obama care, i am going to have dental coverage for children. i saw this spot by delta dental from virginia. >> okay, okay. >> great, great. weather where would you like the baby car seat. >> no, i don't have kids. >> it doesn't matter the government said you have to buy it. >> where should i put. it >> smile, smile. >> yeah, you know the fact that my own children are grown and on theiron and have their own children is immaterial. i am man dated to carry dental insurance for the children we don't have. and while you think that is unnecessary, i found out under obama care, i also have maternitiy benefits. yes, (applause) it is man dated and so i am going to have it whether i ask for it or not. some people complain the government forcing me to buy something i can't or don't need much i am a glass half full. i s
. of recent notoriety, kathleen sebelius, health and human services secretary who saw the disastrous rollout of the president's health care plan. she fell on her sword at a house committee hearing, apologized, and then threw under the proverbial bus two other women who had senior roles in devising the system. samantha power, media hungry ambassador to the u.n. reportedly caught mr. obama's attention after writing a book about genocide in rwanda, her specialty. she recently told "vogue" magazine after all these years of doing atrocity work i still cry my eyes out every time i read the paper in the morning. miss powers thinks troops should intervene anywhere in defense of humanitarian causes including libya. she never tires of talking about balancing the care of her husband and two young children and her position in world affairs. while not appointed by mr. obama, lois lerner was a devoted democratic partisan before she was forced to resign as ahead of the exempt organization division of the irs. lerner was caught targeting her extra scrutiny christian and conservative groups who applied for t
theovernment said it wast kathleen sebelius' job to ke the website run rig because they're not i.t. experts. you can't blame them for this bched launch. this botchedaunch is a self-inflicted wound by the presiden it shows just how disconnected he's been, and he's undercut his best arments for having a progressive, engaged federal government and i think we're going to s not only is he goingo continue to have i.t. problems on the websi, he'slso going to continue to have problems as we roll this out and we findut there are winners and losers in bama care. hat's not a shock to us, but the president has been promising for four years we were goi to get 31 million people on theew rolls andveryone is going to be happy. >> we're not even 30 days into the implementation yet. i know republins want to ep-six this thing but it'snot going tohappen. the preside will get this right. >> the article that tal about sticker shock, i don't think t republicans are running the editorial ge of the l.a. times. you're alsotalking about the fact that the president made promises that ended up just not being tre. at wa
he ask him? >> he asked him about kathleen sebeli sebelius, whether or not she was on his team, he asked him about the website, when did you know it, which he bobbed and weaved around. >> and he mentioned clarence paige, who called the president a liar on this. >> and that's from his hometown ""chicago tribune." but my point is is that this is a 25-minute interview. we saw clips from this 25-minute interview. and those interviews, when they are not live, are doing very differently than a live interview. you have much more time. i think they both looked more conversational than you would in a very confrontational interview. >> jim pinkerton, this semi apology, qualified apology, was big news everywhere, but not so much in the "new york times." >> the "new york times" had already tried to spin the thing for the president, he, quote, misspoke. >> in fairness, that was the editorial page. >> exactly. that's the flagship for liberalism. and four days before was -- do you have the headlines? >> no. >> millions eligible for free policies under care act. i thought the failure of the times

[no audio] [no audio] [no audio] [no audio] >> we will come to order. in february, 1958, against a backdrop of a divided nation, the junior senator from massachusetts spoke at loyola college in baltimore. the young senator named john kennedy said," let us not seekir but act. let us not the republican answer or the democratic answer but the right answers. let us not seek to fix the blame for the past but except their own responsibility for the future." later, the5 years jfk advice still rings true and it's important for us to remember now as we implement the affordable care act. five weeks ago, the administration launched the federalov, insurance website was to be the main vehicle for milli
're not getting paid. >> kathleen sebelius pledged to congress that this website would be up and running by the end of this month november 2013. is that going to happen, do you think? >> i don't know how it would happen but, again, this is an administration. we've watched five years of this. they can talk the talk but can't walk the walk. by deepest disappointment the american people have witnessed total incompetence. and their expectations for a good performance are so low that they expect everything to fail. that's wrong. these are hard-working american taxpayers who get up every morning, throw their feet out of bed, go to work so they can provide benefits for their family. where in the world is the accountability and who is being held responsible for coming up short in a can't find anybody who says it's my bad. the president himself said i'm sorry people misunderstood what i said and i'm sorry you can't tell the truth. >> we have to leave it. one word. do you think you'll get a response? you said you wanted one in 14 days. will you get it? >> our job in congress is oversight. we can l
